By multiplying the length, breadth, and depth, in Paris feet, and dividing by 94.

Length taken from stem to stern, breadth taken in six places,
and depth in three. The breadths are added up and divided
by 6, and the depths are added up and divided by 3. A de-
duction is then made for the beams. The length is then mul-
tiplied by the mean breadth, and the result by the mean depth.
The last result is multiplied by 2, and the product divided by
3, which gives the Belgian measurement.

By multiplying the length between the mizen and fore masts by the breadth at the gangway, and dividing the product by 10.

Tonnage of United States vessels calculated by their registers.

Multiply the sum of the depths by the sum of the breadths, and this product by the length, and divide the final product by 3,500, which will give the number of tons register.

The size of Hanseatic vessels is stated in lasts, two of which
are equal to 34 American tons. (Vide page 44.)
